I once saw young artists copying the masters in the British Museum, and that’s what would-be master business people should be doing too. some champions can give you small but enduring hints for success while others can offer you a virtual blueprint.
If you want to grow your business, look to those who have done it before you and gain inspiration and then create your plan.
One short story before I finish and this is not about a well-known star but a local hero who turned around a potential poverty problem.This fella left the priesthood in his 50s, and when you cut out of God’s service, there is no superannuation or divine pension.
He had diddlysquat, and there were not many jobs for out-of-work priests. After talking to a money expert, he decided the only way he could catch up in the money stakes was to buy ramshackle homes he didn’t have much money and he simply did them up and sold them. He had somewhere to live while he did this and, as it was his principal residence, he was able to sell the homes with no capital gains tax.
He pulled off the triple play. First, he built up his wealth so he is set to retire with a lump sum better than most Australians. second, he gave himself a job, which was really a development business in doing up the properties. And third, he had somewhere to live.
